#WRITESTYLE Spotlight: Erica Wark

Monica Smiley

 Erica Wark is the ultimate girl's girl, the kind of person you wish was your best friend IRL (and is the kind of friend who lets you raid her closet from time to time). I've been following her style journey for the past few years via her countless television appearances on shows like The Marilyn Denis Show and The Social, and also on her jaw-dropping instagram account where her boho-chic wardrobe and sweet personality come to life! 

 As a style expert, Erica is not only always on trend, but also 100% approachable and down-to-earth. A rare combo in this business, I admire her for her fashion choices and her kindness. I had the pleasure of working with her a few years back and one thing that stood out to me was her effortless attention to detail. Her thoughts were so organized, and her responses always so punctual...surely she has some great organizational tools to share with the rest of us right? Perhaps a great notebook in her life? Find out about Erica's #WriteStyle below! 

   

 WHAT IS THE BEST STYLE ADVICE YOU'VE EVER GIVEN/RECEIVED?

EW: Ooooo... that's a tough one. I've always loved the quote by Lauren Hutton: "Fashion is what you're offered four times a year by designers; style is what you choose." I really couldn't agree with this more. It's the individual who creates style; wearing it in a way that makes them feel happy. That's what fashion is meant to do!

 

IF WE COULD PEEK INTO YOUR CLOSET, WHAT WOULD WE FIND?

EW:  I must admit I'm a bit of a chameleon. My day to day style is fairly basic - jeans and a tee, a great pair of sneakers and a moto jacket. But I also love to dress up: printed shifts, romantic lace, off the shoulder, you name it! I'm lucky enough that with my job, I get to change things up often!

 

WHAT IS THE NUMBER ONE STYLE ESSENTIAL YOU CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT?

EW: Probably my Mackage crossbody. It packs all the essentials, is perfect for travel and it's Canadian!  

 

WHERE CAN WE COMMONLY FIND YOU TAKING NOTES?

EW: Either at studio, my office, even at the mall! I bring my notepad everywhere I go - I'm old school - I love to write and love the feeling of crossing things off lists!

 

IF WE COULD PEEK INSIDE YOUR NOTEBOOK, WHAT WOULD WE FIND?

EW: Probably a bit of everything! Being self-employed, I'm always juggling multiple projects so I'll often make lists of tasks that are ongoing, notes of items that clients need or are looking for, model info for TV segments, even some doodling here and there when I'm brainstorming!

 

MATCHING YOUR NOTEBOOK TO YOUR OUTFIT...YAY OR NAY?

EW: Nay - you should have just as much fun with your notebooks as you do your wardrobe!

 

  Erica's advice is just as on trend as her fabulous wardrobe! Don't forget it! Write down all of her notes and a few of your own in our new Metallic Gold "Blogger Breakfast" notebook...shop for it here!
